Gordon Murray’s detailed tour of his new T33 615bhp V12 Supercar (30 yrs after McLaren F1)

From The Late Brake Show.

Gordon Murray gives a detailed tour of his new T33 615bhp V12 Supercar (30 yrs after McLaren F1). Jonny Smith was invited to the new Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) site in Surrey, where Gordon himself gave a deep-dive tour of this second GMA supercar – the T.33.

The T33 uses the same high revving Cosworth 12 engine as the T50, but is a sided driving position supercar (left or right hand drive), available with manual or rapid paddleshift auto. Weighing only 1090kg and red-lining at 11,100rpm, the £1.3 million freshly launched car sits below the flagship T50 (central driving position) model, and as such costs over a million less.

Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.
